Updike's prose is extremely descriptive in parts, you really feel the full picture that is Tarbox. His characters are both flawed and well developed and the story applies as much today as it did in the 1960's when it was published. A well known banned book for the ages - It was my first time reading Updike but won't be my last. A classic.
